Having to return to the workforce after having a baby is a huge emotional roller-coaster for any mother, the anxiety about making the right choice is overwhelming for most, especially when it comes down to picking the right early childhood education centre for your child should you have to use one.

Sending my daughter to daycare at 6 months old after being able to be home with my son for a few years was nerve-racking, all the questions start going through your mind, am I making the right decision? will she be ok? what if she cries for me? what if they cant put her to sleep? Not to mention the constant knots in my stomach leading up to her first day.

From the moment I walked through the doors at Learning adventures, Airport Oaks, all those feelings disappeared, I saw how relaxed my daughter was with the teachers, how they interacted with her, how she was happy, how they asked questions around her habits and patterns to ensure they had a smooth transitioning period, it instantly put my mind at ease.

Nearly 3 years on, she’s thriving, happy, excited to go to daycare each morning & she absolutely loves and adores her teachers. I know she’s safe and well cared for and that’s all I can ask for.

Next year her baby sister will join her, I know she will be loved and taken care of just like my daughter has been.

Thank you team for taking care of my daughter like she was your own, teaching her, helping her little mind grow and keeping her safe


The design layout of the classes are great, meeting all your child’s needs or wants and the daily structures are so well planned and executed even with the changing weather my little boy seems to have a fun filled and adventurous day, every day. I always feel he is safe and well looked after. To Trudy and all the Little Kiwi team at Learning Adventures Airport Oaks I don’t know what I would do without you. Thanks


From the first phone call I was made to feel completely at ease, with all my questions being answered, we were invited to have as many visits as we needed before making a decision. It’s not an easy thing trusting someone else with the care of your precious child, but the staff made it an easy transition for both my son and myself. One of the many things I was looking for when enrolling him was an open door policy, knowing I can check on him at any time, and having my calls answered by such friendly staff gives me peace of mind. The staff are always happy and welcoming we are always greeted by name in the mornings along with a cheerful smile. My son has blossomed in the time he has been there, it amazes me all the skills and knowledge he has gained since starting there. Learning Adventures Airport Oaks is an amazing family orientated place and I could not be happier with the choice I’ve made, or the staff I’ve entrusted the care of my little one to.


Enrolling with Learning Adventures Airport Oaks has been one of the best things I have ever done for my son. His development has exceeded all my expectation and he just loves to go.

In six months I have seen him learn many new skills including games, singing, dance, drawing and painting to name a few. Also with the development skills he is learning a lot of words, how to interact with others well and follow instructions. All of the carers are warm, caring, fun loving and friendly, whilst at the same time are extremely professional. I know and feel I am leaving my son in the best possible hands.


I have 3 super active boys who attend Learning Adventures Airport Oaks & they have the best time. They all started as 1 year olds & the transitions through each room seemed so smooth. I think the quality of learning has amazed me the most. Re-telling stories, reading numbers and some letters and pronunciation are just a few of the great skills my boys have adopted which I am truly grateful.


I am really pleased that I found Learning Adventures Airport Oaks for our son. He started in the under two’s classroom as I began maternity leave, and was welcomed and settled in well. He was supported extremely well through his transition to the over two’s classroom, and only two months into it, he is so comfortable it feels like he has been there much longer!

We have really enjoyed the events put on by the centre and the welcome given to other family and friends. 


All my children love to go to Learning Adventures Airport Oaks and are always wanting to head straight out the door first thing in the morning. The staff have always put our mind at ease and been able to challenge our children as well as having a loving environment for our children to become outgoing, independent and caring kids. Recently our eldest daughter turned 5 and two weeks into starting school the teacher said to us that her “language, story recollection, maths and alphabet skills are great and it is a credit to both her daycare and her parents”. I could say so much more but at the end of the day, I recommend Learning Adventures Airport Oaks to all that I can and I dread the day that we have to say goodbye.
